Introduced by locals to the place. The owner and staff are surely very pleasant and welcoming! We really wanted to like this place. However, the food was among the most regretful things we have eaten in Rome. This is a primarily food review platform so...More

Been a client for decades, was back in the city after a few years and found the food, the wines, the courtesy at Checchino still top level. I strongly suggest it and, if possible, ask to see their Cave, inside Monte dei Cocci....

Do not expect fancy modern restaurant - this is all about tradition and history. Perfect service, great traditional roma cuisine - do not forget to try pajala, coda and trippa.

Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio,
an ancient Roman port and former working class
neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost
every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche

give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the
daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club
